Primavera can mean pretty much what you want it to. The translation from Italian for primavera is the season Spring. There are hundreds and thousands of recipes out there calling themselves "primavera," but I have always thought of this as recipes made with the first vegetables planted in the spring (usually the first to come up). You don't have to be literal minded (no one else is) and can use pretty much any veggie you like for this recipe.
Servings: 2 | Serving size: 4 ounces pasta with 4 ounces shrimp
Cooking Time: 30 Minutes
This recipe can easily be multiplied and makes very good leftovers. Reheat gently.
Place the water in a large stock pot over high heat.
Add the pasta and stir occasionally.
While the pasta is cooking, add the olive oil to a large skillet over medium high heat.
Add the garlic and shallots and cook for about 1 minute. Stir frequently.
Add the tomatoes and cook for another 2 minutes, tossing frequently.
Add the yellow squash and zucchini and reduce the heat to medium.
Cook, tossing frequently, for 5 minutes.
Add the shrimp.
Cook for 6 minutes and toss frequently so that the shrimp cook evenly.
Add the sherry, salt, pepper, butter.
When the shrimp are almost done the pasta should be just cooked through.
Using tongs grab the pasta and transfer to the sauté pan.
Some of the pasta liquid will transfer but that's OK.
